Mamma Mia!

The touring production of the Broadway hit, Mamma Mia! stopped in Manhattan last night.  Amanda and I had seats in the nosebleed section, but fortunately, McCain Auditorium on the K-State campus is small enough that even the second balcony still has a great view.  The show was perfect for mother/daughter bonding time - the music of my high school years made "current" so we both enjoyed.  If you haven't seen the live production, go out of your way to find it!

We had sushi at Umi before the show and coffee at Radina's afterwards.  The only down-side would be that, since the show was only in town for one night, we had to attend on a Monday.  By the time we got our coffee and I made the two hour drive home, it was 1:00 a.m.  So that buzzing sound you hear is probably me, snoring at my desk - but it was worth every drowsy moment!


  1. Sounds like a great night! I didn't like the movie version of this at all but I think I was so distracted by all of the big names and terrible singing. I think it would be much more fun on the stage!

  2. I saw Mama Mia with my sister and daughter a few years ago in San Francisco. It is a fun production and we had seats real close, third or fourth row from the stage, slightly to the side. I leaned across my sister to say something to my daughter and the orchestra struck it's opening notes...LOUD! We were close to the speaker, I jumped and fell into my sister's lap. We all laughed so hard that that became our best memory of that day!
